Jaquet Droz Bird Repeater Limited Edition Watch

Jaquet Droz is known for their rich history of creating automata. This time they amaze us with their newest creation, the Bird Repeater. A combination of a minute repeater and an automata of birds feeding three chicks, of which one comes out of an egg, while the water of the stream flows in a continuous cascade. The dial is totally done by hand and is incredibly well-detailed. The base dial is mother of pearl, which is hand-engraved and painted. The waterfall done on a rotating disc which spins to create the illusion of falling water. The birds and nest are also hand-engraved and painted individually. The animation sequence has an impressive level of action with wings opening, eggs hatching, and chicks being fed. Just 16 pieces will be made, 8 in 18-karat gold and 8 items with diamonds. The price will be close to half a million Swiss francs.
